is still slow coming here in . Having recently hiked in warmer Arizona, I saw yellow lichen there. It seems to thrive in very different places.

Right, let's try this:) Something I made a while ago and that's about to be published #illustration #art #conceptart #books

really get into virtual reality. At a Chucky Cheese I stood nearby with my camera as my grandson played a video game. He was into it!

Landscape photography is the slowest kind I do, and for that reason it's calming. I find diagonal lines in landscapes almost essential to lead the eye inward and give energy to the composition. I like people in my landscapes (when passers by luckily appear). They provide scale and they anchor a composition, like garden sculptures do. Light and color are always important, especially good light which is hard to define, but I know it when I see it.

You are allowed to do stuff just because you want to.

Even if it uses up all your spoons/matches.

Even if it leaves your exhausted and broken the next day.

Even if you need to let other stuff slide a bit while you recover.

You are allowed to have fun, to go out, to take a day once in a while and do what you want with it.

Being #disabled, or #chronicallyill, or a #parent, etc doesn't mean you can't take time for you.

Ring Billed Gulls' memories of winter. . . .

I belong to an organization called Delaware Pacem in Terris. "Pacem" has been working on and projects since the Vietnam War. Last year they organized a traveling exhibit of art by first grade through high school age students. Here are some examples of that art.

Goldcrest is the smallest bird species in Finland (maybe also of Europe). Surviving a nordic winter exclusively on insects and spiders is an astonishing deed. For this fluff ball the worst was behind :)

I want it to be a framework that others can pick up and take and plant everywhere else as well. I just happen to live here in Lincoln. I want to create something that can spread easily and rapidly. TRULY collective (again see: "open source") permaculture action is my main goal. To get the laws changed in order to create Eco-villages and ways of living in concert and harmony with each other and nature. ๐Ÿฆ‰

Cherry blossoms at the South Coast Botanic Garden. The whole park is curated, with some parts arranged to seem wild(ish) and others, like this one, more garden-like.

Dear and

With some photos of trees I had taken over several years I recently tooted Joyce Wilmer's, Trees, a sentimental poem written by that soldier who died by a sniper's bullet in 1918. A follower said he was grateful for it, so thinking he'd like more I found a link to some of the best from other WW1 poets: This hopes they may fortify hearts in training for peacemaking.

Killed by a sniper's bullet in WW1 poet Joyce Kilmer remembered trees beyond the trenches:


I think that I shall never see
a poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
against the sweet earthโ€™s flowing breast; a tree that looks at God all day, and lifts her leafy arms to pray; a tree that may in summer wear a nest of robins in her hair; upon whose bosom snow has lain; who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree.

This is promising: SmugMug has bought Flickr & plans to "maintain Flickr as a standalone community of amateur and professional photographers and give the long neglected service the focus and resources it deserves." (quote from article)

Now I don't have to worry about Verizon shutting it down!
